Road details


The roads have now got some extra details in the form of drain and manhole covers and some patches of repairs. This view from the north end of the layout shows some of them. They should probably be of tone and colour more like the road itself - but then they'd hardly be visible!

Drain detail


The covers are based on photos of the real things. This close up (right) shows one of the drains in the station approach road which is seen in the photo above.

These were my first experiments with water slide transfers.

Time for tea


While preparing the transfers I thought I'd make one to decorate one of the cottages thus making it a Tea Room.

Weathering a J39


Bought as a factory weathered model I decided to have a go at improving this J39. I've tried to make it look rather more dirty.

The ex-WD again. The ice cream seller has moved from his usual location and seems to have attracted some customers.
